Updated on Jun 7, 2013

This hotel also allows both cats and dogs (up to two per room, total) at no cost, making it a great choice for guests travelling with their pets.

This smoke-free hotel has 239 air-conditioned guest rooms and suites, each offering one king or two double beds, free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a coffeemaker, a mini-fridge, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board.

Wheelchair-accessible rooms are available upon request and up to two cats or dogs are permitted per room free of charge.

Maryanne from Kansas City, MO US rated Pear Tree Inn Union Station 8 out of 10 on October 05, 2004
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hampton Inn Union Station in St. Louis. The proximity to the city's MetroLink is wonderful. There is no need for a car if all your business or pleasure is within the immediate St. Louis area. When we were there, the hotel was full, but there was no problem with noise. The continental breakfast was very popular with all the guests! The rooms were clean and the housekeeping staff was very good."
Jeffrey from Fishers, IN US rated Pear Tree Inn Union Station 9 out of 10 on July 05, 2004
"The staff was exceptionally pleasant, friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. Location was central to all of my activities. The secure and free parking was an added, and greatly appreciated amenity. The free, high-speed wireless internet access was another unexpected pleasure. This was my first visit to St. Louis and the staff at the Hampton Inn Union Square only added to a fantastic weekend!"
Robert from Milwaukee, WI US rated Pear Tree Inn Union Station 10 out of 10 on June 28, 2004
"I will make sure both elevators were in working order before I book another stay here. One working elevator creates quite a delay - especially when you're checking in and out and trying to transport luggage. We arrived Friday afternoon and left Sunday - no elevator repair service there during our stay. Continental breakfast is average - juice machine was not working Saturday morning. We appreciate the shuttle service to/from Busch Stadium and the free parking for hotel guests. Close enough to Union Station to walk, though we drive and have never had a problem finding parking over there."
Thresa from Muscatine, IA US rated Pear Tree Inn Union Station 7 out of 10 on May 16, 2004
"great continental breakfast, wide selection."
Paula from Hannibal, MO US rated Pear Tree Inn Union Station 9 out of 10 on December 07, 2003

When you visit St. Louis’ Union Station, you’re in elite company. Not only did famous actor Kurt Russell visit Union Station, he filmed his blockbuster hit, Escape from New York in the historic train terminal. It’s easy to mistake the cool, cosmopolitan area of St. Louis for New York City. But unlike the disaster-ridden New York featured in the film, Union Station is not a place you want to escape — especially if you’re staying at the Pear Tree Inn Union Station.

When you venture into the surrounding downtown area, you’ll want to make sure your stomach isn’t grumbling. With our free HOT! breakfast, which includes scrambled eggs, biscuits & gravy, sausage and more, you’ll be all set for whatever the day might bring. Maybe it’s a Cardinals game at Busch Stadium that you’re after, or maybe you’d like to spend the entire day at the City Museum where children and adults crawl through mazes.
